Now enrolling gay couples for the Together Study!

Do you identify as a gay male currently in a relationship? You and your partner could be eligible for the Together Study!

The Together Study is a project that works with gay couples by focusing on their physical and sexual health, ultimately supporting satisfying relationships. The results of the Together Study will help us build future programs that can provide the next generation of gay couples tools for building healthy relationships. Our Community Advisory Board and participants help us shape the study; this makes the work we are doing truly guided by and helpful for the community.

The Together Study is currently enrolling our second group of gay couples.

If you are eligible and participate through the whole study, you and your partner will both earn $250 each (about $50 per visit).

Participation includes:

1. First appointment with you and your partner, which includes HIV testing, a small fingerprick, and an online survey.
2. Two days of couple workshops over two Saturdays.
3. 3, 6, and 9 month followups to see how the workshop worked for you; including HIV testing, a small fingerprick, and online surveys.
